I offer a professional, confidential and prompt individual and couples counselling service.
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor working in North Belfast. I have been providing a counselling service for both individuals and couples for over ten years and I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
My initial training was in the person-centred approach. My specialist training, enabling me to undertake relationship work with couples, and carried out in London University's Birkbeck College, focussed on two further approaches, i.e. systemic and psychodynamic.
I have a background in community work, adult education and research. For many years I worked in both Further and Higher Education teaching psychology, personal effectiveness and research methodologies. I was also a member of the Disability Team working with adults with learning disabilities. I carried out and published several qualitative research projects on disability, inclusion and discrimination.
